Here, too, with an excellent signal. Audio seemed to be breaking up in at least one spot. Have a recording if the op's interested.
Thanks for the show & please QSL...

Noted here with Guitar singing story teller, mentions of a person named "Jack Johnson"  Singer sounded a bit like Arlo "Alice's Restaurant" Guthrie on speed. I think it was the HMS Titanic, not the USS... just sayin'

... mentions of a person named "Jack Johnson" ...

Probably a reference to boxer Jack Johnson, who was the world heavyweight champ in 1912, the year the Titanic sank.  Johnson was newsworthy for several reasons that year, including a bizarre law passed by the US Congress banning interstate distribution of movies about prizefighting - presumably to impede distribution of a documentary film about Johnson's 1910 defeat of former champ James Jeffries.

Sorry I wasn't able to catch this broadcast - propagation didn't favor Gopher Stomp.  I'm hoping Sealord or Chis snagged a recording.   ;)

Recorder catch:

Good signal with little fade - sounded like there was technical trouble in the beginning of broadcast.  Never heard an ID.
